Runway Roundup1 of 13
By Laura Vogel
The spring-summer 2013 fashion shows have just concluded, and we've already spotted plenty of outrageous looks on the runways—and we're not even talking about the clothes. Glo celebrates the most cutting-edge hair and makeup looks.
Luminous Line2 of 13
Alexander Wang's minimalist show featured a crowd-pleasing ending: The lights went out and the dresses on the last eight models glowed in the dark. The ingenious head-topping stripe glowed as well. The rest of the models, as shown here, wore a 'do adorned with a half-inch-wide strip of black tape, a look created by Redken hairstylist Guido Palau.
Space Case3 of 13
Makeup artist Karla Powell designed the metallic purple unibrows worn by the models in the futuristic threeASFOUR show. Using MAC products, Powell created a look for each girl that is best described as alien-chic. Foreheads were shiny, lips were bare, and the triangular amethyst adornment applied between each model's eyes provided the finishing dramatic touch.
On a Roll4 of 13
At Suno, lead hairdresser Odile Gilbert created a masculine-meets-'40s-retro roll on the front of each model's head (the back was secured in a tight bun). Less out-there than some of the other looks seen, this dramatic style still makes a statement.
Bloody Good5 of 13
Manicurist Tracylee was behind the striking nails at the Prabal Gurung show. The designer had requested that the models’ nails look “like they were dipped in blood.” Mission accomplished! Though this style is a tad spooky, it is just in time for Halloween.
Wet & Wild6 of 13
Another unusual look was the super-product-enhanced hair at the Rag & Bone show. Guido Palau for Sultra created a 'do that was slicked-back and wet-looking on top, loose and messy on the ends. Palau used super-hold gel and hairspray to achieve the soaked appearance.
The Red Eye7 of 13
At the Jill Stuart show, makeup artist Diane Kendal created a "smoky" eye…with red shadow to add some drama to the neutral clothes.
Bob and Weave8 of 13
The psychedelic colors and voluminous fabrics of the clothes at the NOT by Jenny Lai show were overshadowed by the curious items on the models' heads. Each catwalker wore oversize sunglasses with multicolored lenses. Even more unique, their hair—designed by stylist Neil Gogoi of Privé Salon—was worn slicked-back and held in place with a giant row of white bobby pins…at least 25 on each model.
Bed Head9 of 13
Cutler's Anthony Turner designed the deliberately messy 'dos at Jen Kao's show. His goal was to make the girls like they'd just arrived from the gym. Stylists blew their hair dry, curled it, and blow-dried it again to create the unkempt look.
Seeing Is Believing10 of 13
Though more an accessory than anything else, we wanted to give a nod to Diane Von Fürstenberg's choice to send her models down the runway wearing the just-out Google Glasses. The designer was wowed by the company's lightweight, high-tech eyewear and thought the technology melded well with her new collection. Only problem? The glasses may have gotten more attention than the clothes.
Caged Birds11 of 13
The unabashedly feminine clothes at the Creatures of the Wild show were counterbalanced by makeup and hair dubbed "monstrously beautiful" by Nars lead makeup artist James Boehmer. The models' hair was woven into angular styles held in place by netted "cages"—intriguing for certain.
Net Gain12 of 13
Jason Wu's show was inspired by the work of edgy photographer Helmut Newton, making for decidedly unseasonable black, leather-and-lace ensembles. Legendary French hairdresser Odile Gilbert designed the crowning glory for each model, including this face-covering netting style.
Rainbow Connection13 of 13
Designer Peter Som titled his new collection "Woman on the Verge," naming inspirations as disparate as society lady Brooke Astor and Courtney Love. Models with multicolored hair and makeup wore grunge-inspired looks. Each girl also showed off a slightly different eye hue combo, designed by Tom Pecheux for MAC.
